Hope Chest
by PamFord Davis  
10/05/2009 / Devotionals

What are you setting aside for your future? Is there a nest egg, IRA or pension plan? We can learn life lessons from hopeful young ladies diligently storing heirlooms and essentials in a hope chest. She expects to wed one day and prepares far in advance.

There is something very romantic about a cedar lined chest tucked away in an attic or closet. Prospective brides play the waiting game with great patience, counting the passing years with frequent openings of the locked receptacle. She is selective as she places items inside along side of her dreams. When Miss becomes Mrs., she will proudly open her hope chest, and remove the contents in a new home!

Are you storing away treasures for heaven? (Matthew 6:19-21) "We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints; because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel,
(Colossians 1:3-5 NKJ)." Rejoice; you can send true wealth ahead and a hope chest awaits your scheduled arrival!

Devotionals are her first love in writing. Published articles in Mature Living Magazine, Devotions for the Deaf, The Secret Place, Light from the Word, Coosa Journal, With God Daily, Mary Hollingsworth's The One Year Devotional of Joy and Laughter.
